Silver Meteor #109
Author: twropr

Today (Sat) the train left Miami an hour earlier.  Twitter had a noticed saying this was to accommodate holiday business.
Train has 12 cars - same as it has had since Wednesday, so I am not sure why the schedule adjustment was made - unless they intend to make a same day turn to #97
in NY tomorrow and use equipment from 98-29 (which would normally turn as 97-01) to fill out other trains.

Actually Thanksgiving day the Meteor had 13 cars.  Not sure about revenue producing, but it had a baggage car and a new bag/dorm car on the end.

And the correct train number is 1098(30).

Anytime I bring up riding Amtrak to friends and family, the first thing they ask is "how was the food in the dining car?"

We used to take the Silver Service for years when vacationing (BOS - various Florida cities), and when we told friends and family that we took a train to Florida they usually all asked "you can do that?".
